I really love this nickname. So sweet. We had so much mango this summer, in fact we still have mango cubes in the fridge just in case we want a yummy mango smoothie. During the hot days I prepared mango lolly pops.
Anyways, by week 18 I got myself into a reasonable routine and I was feeling more alive than ever. I announced to the ‘world’ that I am expecting you. I felt so beautiful in this outfit because I started to make the effort to dress like a woman.
and your sister always funny, she is going to make you laugh so much
You started to move more and more each day. And we are doing so many things. We went to the lake, river, Waskasiu and La Ronge, here we saw the Northen Lights. It was AMAZING.
Being in my belly didn’t slow us down during these weeks. AOI and I we doing so much. We started playgroup, I went to help set up the toys and helped at the registration day. My energy level was high.
In photo 19, I told AOI that you are the size of a mango but she wasn’t convinced.
Week 20 we had the first ultrasound. The day before we went to see you I was overwhelmed. I was looking so forward to seeing the first glimpse of you. Your movements reassured everything was fine but going to see you was a family appointment.
The ultrasound was on September 6th at 12:30, AOI fell asleep but woke up just in time to see you. As soon as she woke up she asked “What’s the baby doing?”
“Baby is relaxing.” during the previous midwife appointments she didn’t want the midwife to touch mummy’s belly, so we were worried she was going to freak out seeing you on the monitor. Instead, she calmly rested her head on daddy’s chest and looked at the monitor and said “Baby relaxing.”
Then the nurse revealed your gender.
Now, to reveal or not to reveal the gender? That’s the dilemma, he he!
Question: Would you like me to reveal the gender baby #2 or do you want to wait until the baby is born?
Now don’t forget to link up your pregnancy and new motherhood updates.
As I mentioned in last week’s post, my friend Erica, @To The Sea, and I have noticed a lot of others mamas posting updates lately, so we wanted to create a way for pregnant mamas (and new mamas) to link up their weekly pregnancy or baby updates. That way we might be able to find new blogs to follow that we can all relate to. So feel free to add your update below! Grab a button to spread the word.
